I read once that having your children 3 years apart was the healthiest for the mother's body. I had no idea what this meant when I read it, but it stuck with me. I just knew that all of my babies would be between 2 and 3 years apart, because if I wanted to have 4 kids I had to have them close so I wouldn't be an old lady when I had my babies and because 3 years was the "healthiest."
So my baby is turning 3 in April. THREE. tres. 3.
Where is my next baby?
Did my next baby get lost in between new jobs, changing hospitals, growing a business, short selling a house, a giant lawsuit, depression and counseling, guilt of being a working mom, rising cost of daycare, marital stress, my mirena IUD, convenience, blogging, pinterest?
I am finally to the point in my life where the thought of baby number three is entering my life. It is that strange feeling how sometimes life doesn't go as planned. I haven't wanted a baby yet because for some reason I knew it wasn't the right time. The some reason could have been a number of the reasons above- but I promise it wasn't because of blogging or pinterest :)
Or it could have been just because having another baby at this point in my life wasn't what was best for my family. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. But for now my IUD is happily in place until I decide it wise part ways.
What about you? How did or are you spacing your children? Advice?
